Kettle Corn and a Staff
I've always joked that I could do what Martha Stewart does if I had a 'staff'. Well I'm happy to say that I've arrived! My daughter and her sweet family are living with us for few months. Jill is one creative gal. I was meeting with some friends and asked Jill to make a treat for me to share. This is what she came up with.
Pop 1/2 cup pop corn in an air popper, remove unpopped kernels. Melt four ounces of butter, add 6 Tablespoons sugar and a pinch of salt. Cook and stir over low heat until mixture is thick and sugar is dissolved. Pour mixture over popcorn and stir well. Spread popcorn on a cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes at 300 degrees. Cool and put in a darling box with plenty of ribbons.
I delivered this to my friends, they were impressed. It's a snap I said, when you have a 'staff'. Thanks Jill!
